I'm a rather green ancient hippy photographer who is also a bit of a yarnweaver.
I enjoy Streeting (shooting Street), catching Mother Nature's wonders in the Plant & Animal Kingdoms, and there are many. I love finding the characters in Nature, those who we don't always see, a face in the bark of a tree etc. And sadly, I'm addicted to Reflections.
But most of all I love walking the Land, with all my senses wide open.

Palm Oil production is destroying the  rain forests of Sumatra, this is the cost.



This looks at the bigger picture of the destruction of the Rain Forests of Sumatra
Fires continue to blanket Sumatra with haze. This image, taken on March 7, 2014, by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite, shows fires outlined in red. The fires burn in peat forests, which produce dense smoke when they burn. Fire detections from the MODIS sensors on both the Aqua and Terra satellites play a significant role in monitoring burning in Indonesia. This image shows around 400 fire detections, meaning that MODIS detected at least one fire in about 400 one-kilometer pixels.

According to local news reports, some of the more intense fires are burning in the Giam Siak Kecil-Bukit Batu biosphere reserve and were deliberately set to clear land for palm oil plantations. The Giam Siak Kecil-Bukit Batu biosphere reserve contains just over 700,000 hectares of peat forest that sustains a wide range of plant and animal species including the Sumatra tiger, elephant, tapir, and sun bear.

It is illegal to set fires to clear land in Indonesia, but the practice is common. The chief of the Indonesian National Disaster Mitigation Agency told ANTARA News that 99 percent of the fires in Sumatra and Kalimantan were deliberately set. Most fires occur during the dry season between April and October. The fires in 2014 started in February and have already forced Indonesia to declare a state of emergency because of poor air quality.

The Malaysian Peninsula is at the top of frame, with Sumatra below.
